Green Revolution Association was established in 2009, with the goal of promoting urban ecology and taking the actions that are at the very foundation of a green city. Green Revolution, together with Bucharest Municipality, created the program “Capitala Creşte Verde” (“The Capital Grows Green”) and also initiated two bills, Picnic Law and Law regarding selective waste collection in public institutions. In addition, the Association organized several seminars and conferences, such as “România în drum spre Copenhaga” (“Romania on the way to Copenhagen”) or “România şi schimbările climatice” (“Romania and climate changes”), in partnership with the Representative Office of the European Commission to Romania. Last but not least, Green Revolution started the first bike-sharing project in Romania, “La Pedale” (“Pedaling”).
